Trying via IV
Buprenorphine & Naloxone
Citation:   Alex C.. "Trying via IV: An Experience with Buprenorphine & Naloxone (exp72942)". Erowid.org. Sep 28, 2018. erowid.org/exp/72942

2 mg IV Pharms - Buprenorphine (liquid)
  .5 mg IV Naloxone (liquid)
[Erowid Note: Intravenous (IV) injection of crushed pills/tablets can be very dangerous due to unknown substances, binders, and fillers present. Any substance injected directly into the blood stream should be very pure. Clean needles and medically appropriate techniques should be used to avoid serious injury or death.]
[Erowid Note: Because opiate use can lead to significant tolerance (requiring higher doses for the same effects), the dose used by a first time user is significantly smaller than that used by a regular user. It can be extremely dangerous to choose ones dose on the basis of the amount taken by someone else. Overdoses of opiates can be fatal.]
The **IV** Suboxone Trial

Since I havent seen anyone write a report in SHOOTING (IV) suboxone, I decided to look into if the nalaxone would send me into withdrawl like I've read. Well I went to the suboxone web site and it actualy said that if youve used any opiate like heroin meth or morphine in the last few days then when one shoots up the suboxone they'll get withdrawls. So basically I read that as I wont have a problem.

I take 8mg every day and I dont use dope anymore so I decided to take about a little more than 1/4th of the pill and crush and add water..then stir..then cotton...then suck up...then shoot. I was worried that id have a problem though because suboxone is still an opiate. The reason I worry is that it says that when one takes the suboxone sublingually that the nalaxone never gets to the blood stream because it cannot be absorbed when taken correctly.

Well about 7 seconds after I shot the 1/4th of the pill I felt as if I got hot for a second...I started to worry and maybe that gave me some kind of hard heart beat because after about 7seconds from shooting I got real hot for about 4 seconds then my heart started pounding and it went away after about 15 seconds and I was thankful for no problems. I looked for the usual signs of the 'sickness' and there were none. Id say about a minute after the pounding stoped I could feel the posative mood shift I get from taking 8mg sub. But as if I had only taken 4mg. Which makes sense because I used less and it was a fast route via IV so I actually dont think this is a good idea to shoot. Think about it. If I got real hot n actually could feel the sweat coming out of my skin off of 1/4th an 8mg pill then I dont think shooting 8mgs would be good. I know for a fact it has to do with the nalaxone entering the blood and to the brain. I think its kind of wierded out by the buprenorphine attaching to the receptors right as the nalaxone is sayin hey ur not supposed to be here I was here first n the the bup. Says wait I'm not really a true agonist I'm also your friend an antagonist.. I think there was a problem there between the 2 being there at the same time and all that shit. Hope this is some advice.
